I got home from school last week and was greeted with this wonderful scarf in the mail. It's from my sister...it was a personal request after she made me the very warm headband for Christmas. We corrdinated the yarn to match my winter school jacket. I should be toasty warm now during those ourtdoor activites and recess duties.
I've mentioned before here on my blog, that my mom is a very talented knitter, but didn't know my sister picked up on the hobby until she shared with me that she is Loom Knitting. Have you heard of it?? I'm amazed by the wonderful patterns available and love how thick and warm my headband and scarves are!
Now, I myself have no plans of starting...but just had to share as first, I was so impressed by the quality of knitting in my sister's gifts and secondly, wouldn't Loom Knitting be a great way for kids to learn to knit!?
And, DARN IT, Chicken soup is my new best friend!
I can tell ya I'm missing my sewing and am looking forward to sharing some projects I have floating around in my head very soon! Unfortuantly, my long weekend of sewing turned into a weekend battling a stomach virus this past 36 hours. So as I get myself back into world of living, know sewing will be some of my "therapy". Funny thing is, being a very healthy eater, my family is starting to tease that I need to eat a little bit more junk food as I'm always the one who gets some kind of flu or stomach virus every year! Hmmm???? Maybe they have a point???
